Connections to Senior Care and Home Healthcare Providers, Resources and More!

eCare Request Launched for Individuals and Nonprofits

BestHomeHealthCare.com eCare Request Effortlessly
Connects Care Seekers with Local Care Providers

Cleveland, OH (July 30, 2010) – BestHomeHealthCare.com has launched its online “eCare Request” Service aimed at helping busy families, individuals, nonprofit social workers, patient advocates and case managers by allowing them to create and send a request to local providers for senior care or home healthcare services to meet their unique needs.

The eCare Request service is free for individuals to use and quickly sends a unique request to all qualified, local care providers. The detailed request includes specific care requirements about an individual’s care needs, when services are needed, care provider qualifications, how much the patient is willing to pay and their method of payment (i.e. insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, private pay, etc). Once the Care Team approves a request, it is posted on the BestHomeHealthCare.com Web site and a notice is sent to an extensive network of providers that service the patient’s zip code. Every provider has an opportunity to respond to the request if their services can meet the individual’s care needs.

For healthcare centric nonprofit organizations, BestHomeHealthCare.com has developed and launched the eCare Request “Platform.” The eCare Request Platform is a free comprehensive administrative and management tool that allows social workers, patient advocates, case managers and their supervisors to submit, track, respond to and organize multiple eCare Requests for patients in need of in-home care services.

“Our eCare Request Platform has been well received by Cleveland-based healthcare centric nonprofits and we are continuing to enhance our program based on community feedback,” stated Joan Nelson, President of BestHomeHealthCare.com. “It’s just one more way our company intends to help nonprofit organizations serve more people in their communities.”

After a nonprofit’s request is approved and posted, qualified providers will respond back to the social worker not the patient, thereby protecting patient confidentiality and giving them an opportunity to review the provider’s response. The social worker saves valuable time by not having to call each care provider and explain the client’s needs while also fulfilling the unique needs of the client. Also, the nonprofit administrator can review reports detailing the number of eCare Requests posted by an employee and which local care providers are being entrusted with their client’s care.

“We understand the needs of nonprofits and their staff to use their limited resources efficiently. Our eCare Request Platform will help nonprofits and most importantly, the individuals and families they serve, deliver cost-effective senior care and home healthcare solutions,” Nelson commented.
